      IL Wedding Officiant opens

      Chicago Wedding Officiant opens private home to gay & straight couples as a courthouse alternative. Cook County, IL
      :::---:::---:::---:::
      Unique and exclusive, Pine Manor is the private home of IL Wedding Officiant, Rev. Pamela, who is now performing wedding and civil union ceremonies in her home in the NW Suburbs of Chicago. The historic home was built out of the Sear’s and Roebuck catalog in the late 20’s and still features the original arched doorways, hardwood floors and handsome brick fireplace.

      Couples come to Rev. Pamela to perform the ceremony they otherwise would have gone to the courthouse for. Standing next to the historic fireplace or in the back yard garden, couples take their vows in a romantic stress free setting. Couples find comfort in the relaxing atmosphere and are able to truly be present to give their hearts. All couples receive a beautiful hand calligraphy document from IL Wedding Officiant, very important to same sex couples performing commitment ceremonies or handfastings, when a county license is not obtained. The commitment certificate doubles as the documentation to satisfy proof for insurance and other legalities after the ceremony.

      The Handfasting Ceremony is an old Celtic tradition Pamela incorporates into some of her services, where the couple’s hands are bound together by a sacred cord made especially for their union. The tradition is much forgotten today, but the expression “Tie-The-Knot”, is still widely used in wedding vernacular. Rev. Pamela councils with the couple, incorporating their prayers and wishes into the cord braiding as a symbol of being bound together for life. Something today’s wedding ceremonies don’t seem to emphasize based on today’s divorce rate.

      Reverend Pamela can be contacted at her home office 8amm – 8pm at: (847) 873-Pine (7463) or eMail Info@ILWeddingOfficiant.com

      Cost: Payment required - As of July 2011, Every county in the state of Illinois recognizes Civil Union for same sex couples, and Rev Pamela does officiate weddings throughout the state, but the Manor affords the couple a romantic getaway that is affordableCeremonies start at $175 and can be reserved on line: http://ILWeddingOfficiant
